Review: Kingston Wi-Drive wireless storage drive

updated 05:45 pm EDT, Mon July 23, 2012

Extended storage for mobile

One of the relatively few mistakes I think Apple's made with the iPad is omitting external storage. It's probably not a gaffe from their perspective, of course; they charge you far more for a 32 or 64GB upgrade than it actually costs to manufacture. The iPad is closer to a computer than an iPhone though, and thus has much higher demands for some people, especially when it comes to storage. Kingston's Wi-Drive is one of several available workarounds, and we'll put it to the test in our review.

    Your review is a little out of date. Kingston now supports internet passthrough on the Wi-drive.

    Apple can charge a premium for storage upgrades on their devices.

    They spent billions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of hours developing them.

    Can you do the same with the extra money they charge for the expansion options?

    Didn't think so.
